My wife and I were entertained at Gilbert's restaurant by some friend's for my birthday. The restaurant is excellent in all respects. Very good traditional food, plenty of choice and excellent service. It is expensive but worth it. There were several "freebies" between courses too.

Following a very pleasant afternoon at the hotel's Gilbert and Sullivan Charity day and a stroll in the magnificent Lady Gilbert;s gardens we decided to treat ourselves to meal in Gilbert's restaurant. We were not disappointed. Excellent food, friendly and efficient service and a relaxing atmosphere. A wide choice on the menu from which we easily found the right thing... More

My wife and I went to Gilbert's for lunch on Easter Sunday. We know the place well - it is located in William Gilbert's house (the Gilbert of Gilbert and Sullivan), not far from where we live. The atmosphere of the place is excellent: views of the gardens, relaxed, quiet ambience, a splendid building. The Easter menu was good, with... More

Stayed at the hotel and booked a dinner bed breakfast package whilst on business in Harrow.. Ate on a very quiet Monday evening with only a handful of diners, we received £22 credit to use against the a la carte menu. I tried the trio of salmon, the chicken linguine and the creme brulee. Each course was ok but not... More

Such a beautiful and historic house – a magnificent, if now rather messed up, early masterpiece (1870) by the great Arts and Crafts architect Norman Shaw (1831-1912) – should have a restaurant its equal. Most of the period work in Gilberts restaurant seems to be intact, though I imagine it’s a little gloomy when it’s dark (even illuminated by the... More

I have had two wonderful evenings at this restaurant. The service was friendly and efficient and the food quality was very good indeed. What really made the place for me was the exceptional wine list. Not only do they stock some classic wines, but their prices represent the best value I think I have ever seen. This appears to be...

Set in a fabulous woodland setting this restaurant offers a great lunch offer until 7th Feb of £10 for a main course with a free £5 dessert. We skipped the starters (priced from £5) and had main courses of Braised shin of beef, and whole grilled plaice followed by old fashioned rice pudding and choux bun swan. All of these... More
